Chris Hemsworth is basically a part of every franchise in Hollywood. Okay, so like 3. Or 4. He’s in THOR/AVENGERS, he’s in SNOW WHITE, and he’s in Steven Spielberg’s ROBOPOCALYPSE, and maybe a sequel will come out for the new RED DAWN (or not). Recently, he got to talking about the THOR sequel and the adaptation for Daniel H. Wilson’s popular novel.
Hemsworth on THOR: THE DARK WORLD: ”We have six weeks to go to shoot…This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re past the halfway mark!’ which isn’t a good idea, because you’re not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through. But it’s been great. The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite “Game of Thrones” vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor]…For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn’t stop in and catch up with her in ‘Avengers.’ Thor might have some explaining to do in this one….There’s some fun to be had with that…And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from ‘Thor’ to ‘Avengers’ to now.”
Hemsworth on ROBOPOCALYPSE: “No one does sci-fi better than him. It was a no-brainer. And then I read the script and was even more excited if that’s possible.”
THOR: THE DARK WORLD opens November 8th, 2013.
ROBOPOCALYPSE opens April 25th, 2014, and comes from a Drew Goddard script, and is rumored to have SKYFALL’s Ben Whishaw joining Anne Hathaway and Hemsworth in the cast.
